Thursday This n That

I was this close to dipping into full edit-insanity mode yesterday.  I was walking around going 'thatthatthatthatthatthatthat...'  Then I made up a little song.  It went something like this, 'know know know, knowing, knowing, know, knowledge, know know, acknowledged'.  I stopped edits around 7:45 last night and sent the manuscript off to my editor.  That may have saved what little sanity I have left. 

Today, I plan to do yard work.  The weeds are starting to take over the driveway and the paths.

This new keyboard is a pain.  I keep hitting the caps lock when I shift.  Derp.

We had an immature eagle circling the house yesterday.  No, he wasn't acting like that wheel of cheese on those commercials.  Bald eagles don't actually get their white feathers until around 3 years old, if I remember right.  This bird must've been like 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 because he had some white, but not all of it.

I've been so focused on editing, that I only just now noticed my calendar says February.  Derp.

Today's Bird of the Day is a bearded reedling.  Cute and unusual looking.  Definitely not one I've ever seen. 

Okay, that's it for me.  Time to rejoin the real world and see what's happening out there.  Or maybe I should just go fishing.  LOL

What about you?


  1. Go fishing. I'm behind on word count. Spent the morning spinning my wheels on a deal. (Not the deal we've discussed LOL) and I'm supposed to have a conference call with the wigs at HQ with all the authors today. Marketing strategy stuffs. Ugh.

    Going to be 80 today. Windows open, heat off.

    A high speed chase came through the neighborhood (a block away). I watched it unfold through a local channel's helicopter. The idiot crashed the car he carjacked and while trying to run away, he kept having to jerk his pants up. They wanted to pool around his knees. He ended up in a pond, then tried to break into a house. That's when the first two cops and a K-9 got to him. *rolls eyes* #stupidcriminals

    That's it for me. I need 2K words and only have 251. Blergh.

  2. I went fishing. I hope your spinning wheels eventually found purchase and your conference call went well.

    Yeah, Thursday was gorgeous.

    Eek. Thank goodness it didn't end up in your yard. LOL, it always makes me giggle when the criminals are trying to run with their saggy britches. Idjits. I hope the K-9 bit him in the butt.

    I hope you got your words out. Knowing you, you either did or got really close and then nailed it all yesterday.
